ReNew: Louise Silk

Uploaded by Contemporary Craft
ReNew, an exhibition featuring a selection of vibrant works by Pittsburgh artist Louise Silk, showcases up-cycled fiber pieces that shed light on spiritual and environmental contexts. The artist uses T-shirt remnants, old quilts, pieced denim, denim seams, and other recycled materials with hand embroidery, machine piecing, and reverse applique techniques to create her mantles and quilts. Zero-waste—the idea that we send nothing to a landfill, reduce what we need, reuse as much as we can, and compost what we cannot—has made Silk aware of the waste she was producing as well as the impact of fast-fashion industries.
